As a culture we are so weight obsessed, it’s no wonder that most that most women have no clue what they “should” or “shouldn’t” eat. With Real Women Love to Eat, you can take those two words right out of your vocabulary. It’s a breath of fresh air!
No matter where my weight has been, I have, and will, always love food. I will never be one of those women that could care less about eating. This book embraces women that realize that food is to be cherished and celebrated, not scorned. It was amazing to finally find a book that gets it. You don’t have to eat carrots all day to love yourself and love your life. You can love food and still be healthy. You don’t have to give up food in order to love your life.
The book takes you week by week through the “Real Moms Love to Eat” plan. Before you judge, this isn’t another diet that restricts what you can have. Nor is it one that tells you EXACTLY what to eat. There is a lot of freedom in this plan. It’s based on liberating your mind from all those do’s and don’ts we think we are supposed to say when it comes to eating.
I mean come on. What diet plan tells you to each chocolate and something you love every day during the first week? This book does! It’s about taking back your power, and building a strong, healthy relationship with food!
The plan runs over the course of ten weeks. It’s purpose is to let you realize that food isn’t the enemy. You can enjoy food, make succulent dishes, and be happy. It addresses both what you eat, and the things that hinder your relationship with food.
After the ten week plan, there is a great collection of recipes in the back for you to get started with. These aren’t things you “have” to make, but just general suggestions to get your started on rebuilding your life with food.
